Keith had grown this Juniper from a cutting……quite an achievement in itself! The tight movement at the base of the trunk is more akin to a tree produced in Japan. It’s the trunk sections above this movement which are causing the problem.
Really pleased with the outcome of this little tree. We may reduce the length of the dead trunk in the future but for now we can keep our options open.
Sometimes you have to make that drastic decision to remove half your tree before you can move forward. Maybe its better to study it carefully and then make your decision …….rather than leave it to chance!!!
